Installation

If metal posts need drilled, mount our drill template to post in desired position. Peen each hole with a punch and hammer to make small marks in the metal as a guide. Remove template, and drill through each of the marks you just created using a 11/32” drill.

  1. Insert swivel receiver into each hole of end post.
  2. Insert self-grip toggle into the beginning post.
  3. Starting at the end post where swivel system is installed, insert end of wire rope with stud on it into the receiver and turn fitting counter clockwise until threads on stud are just hidden. Make sure cap is installed on wire before proceeding.
  4. Feed rest of the wire rope through all mid posts
  5. At the other end, pull wire rope tight and cut where the wire rope measures halfway down the receiver.
  6. Make sure end cap for this receiver is on wire rope before proceeding.
  7. Insert cut end into receiver as far as it will go.
  8. To tighten the wire rope, go back to the end post and tighten the swivel receiver by turning counter clockwise. Hold on to the wire rope with vice grips while doing so.
    • If wire rope does not get tight enough, use the releasing tool to get the wire rope out of the self-grip side and cut rope shorter.
  9. Snap cap onto receiver.
  10. Repeat for other 10 strands of wire rope.

  1. Using our drill template, calculate how far from the bottom the first hole will need drilled for the wire rope. This is typically 3” from. Mount fixture to post using clamps.

  3. Set drill stop on a 5” long 1/8” drill for a depth of 2” into the post. Drill a pilot hole over each of the counter holes you just drilled.
  4. Using templates, drill holes completely through your mid posts using 11/32” drill.
  5. Drill a blind swivel receiver into each pilot hole.
  6. Follow steps 1-3 for the other end post. Drill our Self-grip fitting into each of the pilot holes.
  7. Going back to the first post you drilled, screw end of the wire rope with the stud attached into the fitting by holding the wire rope and turning the fitting. Turn fitting just until threads are no longer exposed on the stud, then stop.
  8. Make sure cap for the fitting is on the wire rope before proceeding.
  9. Feed rest of the wire rope through your posts to the other end.
